Over the winter, cold water and lack of food changes the way speckled trout feed. For most of the year, trout feed out of reaction. If something lands on the table, they will gulp it down and look for something else to shove in their mouth. But winter is different. Specks become less active and will only eat when they feel the need to lunge towards something that looks tempting. Even when the tide and conditions are perfect, it doesn’t always equate to a strong speckled trout bite.
